4. Architecture: Residential Drafting and Design-By Clois E. Kicklighter Ed. W. Scott Thomas. This book mainly talks about the philosophical and psychological aspects of architecture in our lives and how our environment plays a vital role in deciding our emotions. The space we live and reside is largely reflected in our behavior. Illustrated with clear pictures, this book does not highlight the history of architecture nor the technicalities. Instead, it is all about the body, mind, and space.

After seeing this book on the shelf of a friend's architecture office, I bought it for my homeschooled children who are genuinely interested in architecture and building...Their dad (who teaches drafting and construction) and I could not put it down! The drawings are clear and so comprehensive. The book covers so much...Architectural styles, drawing types, etc. Mostly in drawings with very little text. So many architecture books are filled with heavy text, that you are lost in it, rather than learning the ideas and concepts. That is not a problem here. It is not to say that in any way this is a simplistic, elementary book...I'm sure it is used at the post-graduate and professional levels. The drawings and captions/info just say so much more than all those words! We are all learning a lot from this book, and are looking forward to buying more of this man's work.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
Even if you are not into architecture and only into design or your an artist, this is a great book to have.
It's got some amazing illustrations that are so beautiful to look at.
I purchased not only the digital copy of this book but also the book copy of this.
In an aritst perspective this is great to look at to see the basic structures of a building.
The illustrations are in sketch form and often describe each structure as well as location this is an awesome book to have.

I needed this book for an interior design class. The book is indispensable in distilling key architectural concepts. It's just an introduction, but it really helps students to think in more architectural and 3-D terms. There are also terrific examples and illustrations. The book isn't too dense and easy to read.

As a non-artist taking a digital arts course, this is a textbook for me. I found the book to be a good discussion on architecture and spaces, but I've had to look up things talked about in the book several times on the Internet. I also find the writing is alright, but is not always as clear as I wish it would be for me. For people who have already studied some art and architecture, though, I would imagine this would be an excellent book. What I really like, though, is how it is organized.

Must have for architecture students, professionals and enthusiasts

Those who have panned this book weren't looking for insight into the thought process of architectural design. This book is not a cookbook, but a primarily graphical introductory intended to start the architecture student thinking how architects think.

I'm not technically an architecture student, but rather an architecture design "hobbyist". I found this book very useful as far as helping me to look at the design process in new ways, and to better understand the various historical (and contemporary) methods/techniques used to formulate architectural designs.

This book is a textbook, not a 5 lb. coffee table glossy.

This text was purchased as a high-school graduation gift for a student who has an interest in architecture. IT is an older edition, but the material is still pertinent for modern building development. This author's work was recommended by a professional architect from Leo A. Daly who has a couple of decades of experience in the field.
I bought this for my Architectural Drafting class, and it is an absolutely wonderful book with so much information on architecture, form, and spatial relationships. Came sealed and with an access code to an online interactive site. $35 was a steal for a brand new book!
